Supporting Students from Diverse Backgrounds (online)

April 29, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

| $95

This virtual professional development program, taught by David Patrick and Desiree Vargas of Racial Equity and Justice, is designed to support the culturally responsive practice of school-based student support workers, counselors, social workers, educators, administrators and school psychologists. Participants will learn skills needed to support diverse K–12 students through a trauma-informed or healing-centered lens and engage diverse students and families to meaningfully participate in school communities with practices that foster inclusion and racial justice pathways. Participants will learn how to be more effective social justice agents and learn to implement strategies to develop culturally aware and responsive communities.
